Here comes the winner! Beyoncé wore a wedding dress — her third look of the night — to accept a Moonman for Video of the Year at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday, August 28.
The Lemonade singer, 34, stunned in a Yolan Cris Couture Calamo wedding dress from the Spanish designer’s latest bridal collection. The floor-skimming number was made of floral lace and featured a low neckline and diaphanous puff sleeves. She teamed the stunning piece with silver platform heels, and used her swept-back, half-up, half-down ’do to display a dazzling pair of 116-carat diamond earrings from Lorraine Schwartz. And the bling didn’t stop there: She also wore over 70 carats’ worth of diamond rings from Schwartz, her longtime jeweler and family friend.
The “Formation” performer opted to stay within a light color range for much of the evening. To walk the white carpet alongside daughter Blue Ivy, 4, and other costars from her Lemonade film, she looked fly in a seafoam Francesco Scognamiglio Couture gown with a feathered collar. And while accepting an award for Best Female Video for “Hold Up,” she stopped traffic in a gold lace jumpsuit with wide legs and a matching cape.
Beyonce, who’s been married to Jay Z since 2008, has relived her wedding on more than one occasion with pristine white wedding gowns. At the 2016 Grammy Awards, she presented the Record of the Year honor in a Victorian-inspired Inbal Dror dress that had a high neck, a button-up collar and sheer panels along with Lorraine Schwartz earrings.
She’s also integrated bridal-inspired looks on stage and in her videos. During 2014’s On the Run World Tour, she donned a veil to top a white, wide-legged jumpsuit with lace insets for her performance of “Resentment.” And in 2011’s “Best Thing I Never Had” video, she rocked three looks plucked from a fictional big day: white lingerie by Agent Provocateur, a Baracci Beverly Hills ball gown with a gold embroidered bodice and a V-neck Vera Wang number for the reception.
